Author Spotlight - Romy Sommer

For the first time ever I get to appear in a Minxy Spotlight. After hosting so many other authors, I'm thrilled to be the one here talking up my own book!

Rather than answering the usual interview questions though, I'm going to take the liberty of doing something a little different. (I'm a Minx - I'm allowed!)
I'm going to give you a little eye candy instead....

The Trouble with Mojitos is set on the tropical Caribbean island of Los Pajaros, all lush vegetation, azure sea and sky, and balmy weather. (Not a hurricane or tradewind in sight to mar this idyll.) But as far as heroine Kenzie is concerned, Los Pajaros' greatest asset is...a pirate.

Rik is dark, dangerous and tattooed. Back in the days before his banishment from Westerwald, when he was still a serious and respectable prince, Rik's one and only form of rebellion was the tattoo hidden beneath his clothes. But what good is keeping it hidden? We want to see it, don't we?

A colleague of mine recently complained she was bored, so I set her the task of finding the perfect tattooed torso for this blog post. (Thanks Sarah. Yeah, I'm sure you hate me for it.) This is what Sarah found. What do you think - should she be allowed to choose eye candy again?


I'm celebrating the release of The Trouble with Mojitos with an All Day Happy Hour party over on Facebook today. Come on over and join the fun. There are virtual cocktails, games, give-aways - and loads more eye candy!

The Trouble with Mojitos

Turquoise blue waters. Sandy white beaches. Mojitos…

Film location scout Kenzie Cole has found herself in paradise. And working in the Caribbean for a week is just what she needs to escape the long line of exes in her closet.

Though the last thing she expects is to be picked up at the resort bar by a disgraced former Prince!

Luckily for Kenzie, exile is suiting the man formerly known as Prince Fredrik very well. And it’s not long before his rugged, pirate charm is proving hard to resist.

But Rik’s been spending his time in paradise exorcising demons of his own and he has danger written all over him. If Kenzie was sensible she’d run a mile instead of lose herself to her lust – although, they do say that sometimes you have to get lost before you can be found….

For a glimpse at the opening scene, visit I Heart... Chick Lit.

The Trouble with Mojitos is published by Harper Impulse, a division of Harper Collins, and is available from the following online retailers: Amazon, Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iTunes and All Romance eBooks.

You can chat with Romy in all the usual places: Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads and on her blog.
